E-file-approved commercial software: Personal income tax

Did you receive Excluded Workers Fund (EWF) benefits in 2021?

The Department of Labor (DOL) mailed you federal Form 1099-G with:

  • the amount of the EWF benefits you received in Box 6, and
  • the amount of New York State withholding in Box 11.

You must report EWF benefits when you file your federal and state income tax returns.

If you are e-filing your return, your software should prompt you to enter all the information from your Form 1099-G, including Box 6. If it does not, contact your software company for assistance.

If you are filing a paper return, report the amount in Box 6 as other income on:

  • line 8Z of Schedule 1 of the federal Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, and
  • line 16 of New York State Form IT-201, Resident Income Tax Return.

Visit DOL at 1099-G Tax Information for Excluded Workers Fund to learn more about the Form 1099-G for EWF they sent you.

You may electronically file (e-file) your New York State return for tax years 2019, 2020, and 2021, and estimated tax for tax year 2022 using approved commercial software. Electronically filed returns generally have fewer errors and are processed faster. You can receive your refund up to two weeks sooner when you e-file. 

New York State follows the IRS opening and closing schedule each season. Typically, you can submit tax returns from late January until the middle of November of the current processing year. When we close Modernized e-File (MeF) in November, you will no longer be able to e-file your 2019 tax return. See MeF status for current operational status.

We offer a list of approved commercial software developers who will accurately format and submit your information to the Tax Department. This approval does not imply that we endorse the quality of the software and there may be an associated cost for use of the software. For more information, see E-file—Important information regarding electronic filing.

Some software products do not support the filing of prior-year tax returns. See Tax years supported column.

Please browse through the table of software developers below.
